The well known, Miranda July wrote and directed a comedy-drama film named Kajillionaire. This American crime comedy film had its world premiere on 25 January 2020 at the Sundance Film Festival. The duration of the film estimates for 106 minutes or 1hour 46 minutes. Kajillionaire is an offbeat film by July which has whimsical elements the same as her previous works. The movie is said to be of the heist kind, but it seems like a character study. It depends on the cinematic adventure of the viewer to look at it as refreshingly unique or outrageous.

Filming Sites: Kajillionaire
Cinematographer Sebastian Winterø sets the film in a place different from Hollywood, in the sun-soaked city of Los Angeles, California, USA. This location for filming was perfect due to the dull and dusky main character. The filming crew shot the majority of the scenes in different parts of the city. Some places were namely North Hollywood, some regions around the fashion district and there are also scenes from the City of Industry, and they are not even a part of Los Angeles if we are looking with some strictness. The home of Dyne is a location near the industrial suburbs of Los Angeles next to a bubble manufacturing plant.
The film got ample acknowledgement from the viewers and got an 80% approval rating on a review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes. Even on Metacritic, it got a rating of 80 out of 100. With all this, we can conclude that July has got some potential and incredibly supportive fans. If you enjoyed reading this article and want to know more about such things, stay tuned!
